Rita Jokiranta
IN THE MINDS OF OTHERS
26.10.–18.11.2018

The new work by Rita Jokiranta, In the Minds of Others (2018), is a multi-channel video installation dealing with questions of the interpretation of real life in images but also the incongruence of time and events. Additionally, it tries to explore the complexity of identity, vulnerability, transience and disappearance.

The work is built like a puzzle, reflecting the thought that all events in real life usually are paralleled, coincidental and layered, maybe without any connection to each other. The sequences are transient reflections and momentary observations from the world in which we are traveling.

The work is mostly based on material filmed in New York and Paris 2017-2018. It can be seen as an independent sister work to the multi-channel work Life as It Flees (2017), shown 2017 at Galleria Huuto Jätkäsaari.

Rita Jokiranta is a visual artist who mainly works with moving image and photography. Experimental multi-channel video installations are representative in her production during the recent years. Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows, screening events, film festivals and other contemporary art exhibitions in Finland, the Nordic countries and widely elsewhere in Europe, but also in the U.S.

The technical solutions of the exhibition are provided by Jorma Saarikko/Pro AV Art Oy.

The production of the art work has been supported by VISEK (2017), Arts Promotion Centre Finland/National Council for Audiovisual Art (2018) and Svenska kulturfonden (2018).
The artist’s work has been supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland/The Board for Public Display Grants to Visual Artists (2018), Finnish Cultural Institute in New York (2018) and Cité Internationale des Arts (2017).

Thanks for the support!
